Great house with lots of space and friendly hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Rob and Yolanda were incredibly kind and available throughout my entire stay. When we arrived there was a birthday balloon and welcome basket as well as very easy instructions regarding the house. The house has the basics necessary for a comfortable vacation and is a 10 minute walk from a couple nice beaches (although we were asked to leave one due to it being private). Would recommend and/or stay again!

Perfect location near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We shared the house with another couple and were very comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed with numerous appliances for whatever we needed. Bedrooms were spacious and the beds fine as well. The bathrooms were both beautiful and large.

The location was very convenient to both shopping and relaxing nearby.

Great house and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house Friday night and the hosts were able to accommodate us for a Saturday arrival. The house is fully stocked and very inviting. We live in a high rise and the large back yard and grill is exactly what we needed. We cooked every meal on the grill. It was an amazing experience. The house is walking distance to the beach, not even a 10 minute walk. They let us extend our stay late on the day of the checkout which was a huge help and very much appreciated.

We give this house and the hosts 5 stars.

Charming and comfortable!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect for our mini family reunion. It was charming both inside and out and it comfortably slept everyone in our party. The kitchen was large and well equipped and the dining area was a great gathering place for meals and games. We all had a fabulous time and I highly recommend this wonderful home.

Comfortable and well appointed home from home close to beaches

  • 5 of 5

Booked a week in August for our family in the UK and extended family in USA. Robert and Yolanda were attentive and responsive during booking and run up to the holiday. Their home is a true gem and a home from home, set in a beautiful neighbourhood, a short 5 minute drive to central Milford for shopping and restaurants, or if you fancy it about a half hour walk! Lots to do nearby and we were lucky to have booked during the Milford oyster festival. Every detail catered for at the address including towels, beach towels, sun cream, toiletries etc. The kitchen is fully equipped allowing easy catering for 10 persons with TWO dishwashers! Robert was extremely helpful on arrival and accessible when questions arose via text or in person. I would highly recommend staying here! Damian A.

A true home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely amazing in every way. Robert and Yolanda made us feel so welcome in their home. The 10 minute walk to the beach felt like it was around the corner. The beach was very nice, not at all crowded. The neighborhood is very nice, a friendly feel. I cannot say enough about the house. It looks quaint from the outside but ultra modern on the inside. I cannot comment on local restaurants as our family enjoyed cooking in the chef's kitchen. We all felt so at home. The fenced yard was perfect for our dog. She was able to be outside with us and not on a leash. We enjoyed playing some yard games and sitting outside reading a book. The living room is big enough for the entire family to sit comfortably. The master bedroom is like an oasis. The bathrooms are amazing. Usually by the end of the week everyone is homesick. Not this time. I did not want to leave. I highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed. My thanks to Yolanda and Robert for opening up their home to vacationers. I would come back here in a heartbeat.
